    Just hooked my Bionic to my computer and connected as usb mass storage. I checked properties and I only show 8gb available. What is going on even my D1 came with 16 and that was 2 years ago. The Bionic has higer res camera and hd video. For the price you would think you would get at least 16 if not 32 at todays rate. Am I missing something like a partition or is this Motorola being cheap............:icon_evil:

    It should have 16GB internal and an external sdcard.

    The D3 didn't even come with a sdcard. It does have 16GB internal, plus the 16GB card from my D1. Pop the back off and see if there's a sdcard in there. I don't recall if it shipped with one or not.

    I think you're looking at the wrong drive in Explorer. There are three that appear when you connect the Bionic.

    I believe the sdcard-ext = 16Gb which is the add-in sd card. Sdcard = 8Gb internal storage

    If its the same scheme as the D3 then you are correct.
